Latest Home Decorating Trends

Your home is a highly personal space.  It is where you go to recover from the day’s adventures and the first thing you wake up to in the morning.  In some languages, the act of “going home” is always referred to using the word “return” instead of “go” – implying that no matter where you may currently be, you are always anchored to your home.  That being said, it is important for your home to be a reflection of who you are.  Just as you are not always in the same mood, your home should not have to be either.  There are a lot of great trends for you to mix and match to find the look that’s right for you.

The foundation of your look is going to be the color tone of the room itself.  Transform boring, monotone walls with bright colors.  One of the hottest trends right now is brightly colored walls paired with neutral toned furniture. The stark contrast really makes the furniture pop and give a very dramatic, yet cheerful look.  If you are not feeling confident about tackling a large paint job on your own, you can always opt to hire a professional. Just make sure you do some research before you let a painting company in your home.   A good sign to look for is whether they are a member of the Professional Painting and Decorating Association.  For example, At Greensworks Painting, we are a glencoe painting company that is both a member of the PPDA and we willingly shows proof of Worker’s Compensation Insurance.

If you’d rather go with a more traditional look, you can opt for simpler wall design and more neutral colors.  Instead, you can focus on drapes, curtains and upholstery.  You can go with lace or ruffled curtains for a more elegant look, or match your drapes to the upholstery.  If you are up for a DIY project, you can buy upholstery fabric from most fabric stores and simply re-upholster existing fabric for a completely new look without buying new furniture.

Whether the tone is bright and bold or subtle and elegant, you should feel refreshed in your home.  After all, your mood is influenced by your surroundings, so it would be a wise investment to make sure your surroundings compliment you.
